Sun Bronzed Greek Gods EP
Sounds Like: Irreverent weridos from Worcester, MA making synthy, upbeat quirk rock—here’s a reissue of their debut EP cleaned up nicely for mass consumption.
Free Association: Lead singer loves his cat, Weezy, blunts and sarcasm.
For Fans Of: Girls x Destroyer, Passion Pit sans God and on drugs.
The King of Limbs
Sounds Like: Whoa, didn’t see this one comin’! The Brits drop their eighth album and it’s a short little number full of programmed percussion and chill vibes.
Free Association: “Lotus Flower” has Thom Yorke coming out as a charmingly huge tool.
For Fans Of: UNKLE, Massive Attack x Doves, Internet sensations.
Sounds Like: The Swede goes darker and sadder on her sophomore effort. No more goofy dance times to accompany that Norwegian pessimism, just brooding anguish.
Free Association: No “Little Bit” or “Let It Fall”? Is it that bad over there? We have California!
For Fans Of: Dusty Springfield x Feist + Imogen Heap, cheering up girls.
